Google recently updated the Google Assistant for iOS devices and added support for Siri shortcuts. The feature available on iPhone phones is one of the new features of iOS 12, which allows you to integrate Apple's virtual assistant with third-party applications. Thus, it is possible to call the auxiliary software without having to manually open the app on the iPad, for example. The function is useful for those who prefer the Google solution, which usually responds better to audible commands.
In the following tutorial, check out how to activate and use Siri shortcuts in the Google Assistant. The procedure was performed on an iPhone 8 with iOS 12, but the tips also apply to other models of the phone. The only prerequisite to have the latest version of the system installed on the mobile phone is how to update.
